Google Alerts

I recently hosted a workshop sharing some Google ideas with teachers and to my surprise none of them had heard of Google Alerts.  If you haven’t yet tried setting up Google Alerts you should give it a try.  You can send an alert about any subject that may interest you and Google will send you any information about this subject as frequently or infrequently as you like.  The more you use it the more you learn to narrow your searches and bring only pertinent information.  Simply go to Google and choose more and go down the list until you find Alerts under the Search section.  Select “Alerts” and Google will bring to the page to set up your Alerts criteria.  Alerts has saved me so much time and has kept me interested and up to date with many topics both personal and professional.
